      The King of Telgardia is deadand his killers stand poised to strike at his First Heir. At eighteen, ruggedly handsome Prince Breon Torchanes is already a Swordmaster-Knight and an experienced field commander. The House of Carhlaan and its allies are setting in motion a plot to capture the ancestral keep of the Torchanes Kings before any alarm can be raised, and to wrest the Crown of Joy from Breon before he has a chance to wear it.

    Khisrathi de Torchanes, new Sorceress of Telgardia, vowed at her initiation to stand apart from wars of politics, healing the sick and helping victims of the drought should be her only concern. But Breon is her cousin, and he will lose his life if he loses his crown. Although her magic was not enough to save the King, it could save Breon, and everyone else she loves, if she dares to do the unthinkable

    This is a novel of loves and hates, of secretive political power-plays and outright battles, and magic. The young sorceress, filled with love and compassion must break her vows and use her ultimate magic to save a kingdom, knowing that she will probably sacrifice her own life while doing so.

    Theresa Chambers deftly uses flashbacks to at once fill in the pasts details and support current emotions or emotional conflicts. Images are beautifully drawn and the readers minds eye perceives as the emotional mind reacts. Villainous characters taste just bitter enough to spit out!
